WANTED: clove pinks

mark_fields(z6 MO)May 8, 2014

Does anyone still grow the old fashioned clove pinks? I've moved so many times during my work career that I ended up losing them. I had the pure white single with ragged petals, the pure pink single with ragged petals and double white with ragged petals. They usually bloomed about this time of year and were very fragrant. The "pinks" I see at the garden centers are nothing like the old fashioned ones and I miss them.

That's a very pretty plant but it's not the same as what I grew. Here is a picture .

I grow several plants of pinks. I have moved them from three different houses as I have moved.

The flower pictured above is Lychnis coronaria/Rose Campion.

Linda, if you have any extra starts please let me know. When I was a kid everyone had them, now you can't find the old fragrant type, just the "pretty ones". This double pink is the only one I have left. Now that I've retired I shouldn't be moving around. Mark
